I do not endorse other people’s classes very often, but I will recommend this one. I just completed it and I feel a little smarter now! If you do not have an understanding of current pain science, this course is the place to start.

See this? These are fantastic. I don’t need credits but took this offer up because I was disappointed to not be able to take part (even online) in this summit as I was in surgery. I’ve watched just two of the lectures in part one of these course and I have to say it’s the best $30 (even if it is American) I’ve spent in a LONG time - and there’s still two more lectures left. I highly recommend RMTs take this offer up. Well worth the money and the time and I just can’t see how watching these talks WON’T somehow make you a better therapist!
